Find out more about International Women’s Day 2021

In modern society it is common to see women working within different, diverse industries whether that be of leadership, manual handling, outdoors or of extreme sports.

The world is evolving and attitudes are changing. The manufacturing industry is in a state of reinvention and exciting, educating and empowering women will be critical to the future of the industry.

International Women’s Day has occurred for well over a century, so why stop now…

On Monday 8th March at Retail Furniture, we are jumping on board and joining in with International Women’s Day. A global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

At its core this significant day serves as a strong, important purpose which forces conversations to be had.

We are proud to have an exceptional equality and diversity policy in place which promotes fantastic freedom of speech. We stick by our policies and use them unconsciously without knowing every single day.

Meet valuable female members of our team:

  • Louise Cadd – Financial Director
  • Cathy Evans – Sales Ledger
  • Teresa Farr – Purchase Ledger
  • Maddie Hodge – Marketing
  • Megan Broome – CAD Technician
  • Megan Cadd – Warehouse Operative
  • Lauren Martin – Commercial Support
In the words of International Women’s Day 2021 “From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge”.

In conclusion, it has been enjoyable for us to witness other females in different industries support the cause too. It gives us all at Retail Furniture a great confidence boost to know we’re all in it together.
